Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of R) (Claimant) v TOWER HAMLETS LONDON BOROUGH COUNCIL (Defendant) & LONDON PROBATION TRUST (Interested party) (2013)

PUBLISHED July 18, 2013

A local authority had not acted unlawfully in determining that a 21-year-old prisoner whose parole hearing was imminent was not eligible for supported, therapeutic accommodation if released. The local authority had fulfilled its role in carrying out assessments, but was obliged to give formal, written notification of its position for the Parole Board to consider.
